Title: The Tutor
When physical touch is impossible, intimacy may become a powerful work of art or a devastating nightmare—but above all, it’s an act of trust.
Struggling writer Kelly Blake has a secret life as a sex tutor—it pays the bills. Celebrated sculptor and recluse, Alexander ‘Lex’ Valentine, can’t stand to be touched. When he seeks out Kelly’s advice incognito for what he sees as his ‘self-abuse problem’, the results are too hot to handle.
Kelly terminates their sessions due to her unprofessional behavior, and Lex takes a huge risk, revealing his identity to her at a gala exhibition, his first ever public appearance. After Kelly helps the severely haphephobic Lex escape the grope of reporters and paparazzi, rumors fly that the two are engaged, rumors encouraged by well-meaning friends and colleagues.
The press feeding frenzy forces Kelly into hiding at Lex’s mansion, where he convinces her to be his private tutor. They discover quickly that touch is not the only road to sizzling, pulse-pounding intimacy. But intimacy must survive the secrets uncovered as their sessions become more and more personal.

Well this was an interesting read. Not only is the story topic different, but the approach in resolving “the situation” is brilliant. I never would have thought that this would have worked, but it does…very well.
Lex is a very well known artist, but has a problem. He can’t stand being touched or just plain touching, for that matter. After having a serious breakdown during one of his sculpting sessions, his best friend and personal assistant recommends a different approach to “fixing” his issues. Kelly is an author who moonlights as a sex tutor (secretly, very secretly). So when she’s asked to help Lex, someone who wants to be discreet about things, she’s open to help. But things get heavy….and fast.
Between helping each other, find themselves, exposing secrets and of course, some seriously steamy steamy situations, I fell hard for these characters. It’s really hard not to. Each one has their own secrets and darkness, but they learn from each other and feed off that. As much as this book is steamy and sexual, it’s just as emotionally driven. Yes, I shed a few tears, but they were happy ones.
